## Mr. Rodney

### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

New

Critical Thinking

:

Spatial Reasoning

Use spatial reasoning to solve problems.

###### 1:

Look at a visual spatial puzzle to analyze the pieces and determine which is the correct piece to choose.

###### 2:

Identify given relationships between figures and select figures that have an identical relationship.

3rd

###### Vocabulary:

Flip, Rotate

Activities:

• Students played "Swish," a game that uses a deck of transparent cards with "dots" and "donuts" in 4 colors are placed in 12 possible positions on each card. The goal is to find cards so that the dots and donuts in the corresponding colors match up.
• Mentally manipulated the cards using a series of rotations and/or flips to find a match, or a "Swish."
• Once students were familiar with the game and making 2-card swishes, they were further challenged and asked to find 3-card swishes
• Now able to physically move the cards, students practiced deductive reasoning, laying the first two cards on top each other to determine the location and colors of the dots and donuts needed on the 3rd card to complete the set.
• Engaged in group collaboration, turn taking, and verbal communication.

## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 1:

Understand the breakdown of hours into minutes.

###### 2:

Recognize that a time on the hour will have the minute hand on the 12 on an analog clock and 00 on the digital clock.

###### 3:

Understand and use 24-hour notation (military time).

###### 4:

Link digital, analogy, a.m., p.m., and military time.

3rd

###### Vocabulary:

Military/24-Hour time, A.M., P.M., Analog, Digital, Hours, Minutes

Activities:

• Discussed and reviewd the various ways to tell time and how they relate.
• .Studied a set of analog clocks, read the time, and matched them to their corresponding hour in military/24-hour time.
• Used subtraction when applicable to convert times in 24-hour notation and represented them using analog clocks.
